Cats Versus Dogs: Eating Habits

Cats, after consuming the third of three solid meals consumed throughout the course of a day are usually done with eating for the rest of it, no matter how appetizing or tantalizing the food placed in front of them.
Dogs, on the other hand,...

In Defense Of Big Game Hunters

You kill a predator, say, a lion, you save the countless prey animals it would otherwise have killed and eaten in its lifetime. You kill a prey animal, say, an elk or a buffalo, you save it from being eventually killed and eaten. Leave big game hunters alone. They're doing prey animals a big favor. I think.

Lawlessness : The Result Of Parental Failure

Parents fail as parents when they fail to teach their children it is not okay to turn public roads in residential areas into makeshift badminton courts, soccer pitches or children's playgrounds, public roads with traffic flowing through them even up till late at night.
When that happens, their children grow up and in turn impart the same values, or the lack of, to their own children which is repeated from generation to generation.
Which is why everybody does as he pleases when someone gets married or dies - block off public roads in residential areas with makeshift canopied banquet halls for wedding guests or reception halls for funeral guests. Are there no public halls for wedding receptions or funeral parlors for funerals in town? Of course there are. So why aren't they being utilized instead?
Simple. Because that's what parents teach their children to do from an early age onwards where public roads in residential areas are concerned - to do as they pleased like they bloody well owned them.
I'm referring of course to incidents as mentioned above that happens here in Malaysia and probably in the whole of South-East Asia as well. I'm bloody well certain such 'lawlessness' does not occur in the more civilized western countries of the world, Australia and New Zealand included, but if it does happen over there, I'm bloody well certain you'd need a permit from the local authorities for it. On second thoughts, I'm willing to bet Lee Kuan Yew's Singapore would not tolerate such nonsense either.

For Whom Do The Bells Really Toll?

We mourn our losses,
Crying for the dead,
Foolishly I might add,
For they are in a better place than us,
A place without human suffering or worries of any sort,
Which makes me wonder,
Shouldn't we be envious instead?

The Mathematics Of Addiction And Its Cure

Addiction occurs when addictive substances such as alcohol, nicotine, caffeine and so on are absorbed into the bloodstream of the addict concerned, thus leading to the assumption that flushing out the tainted blood by means of a  total blood transfusion, or whatever such a medical procedure was called, ought to cure the addict concerned of his addiction instantaneously.
